We are a private practice firm of Chartered Building Surveyors based in Bromsgrove, West Midlands, serving Clients nationwide. We provide a diverse range of building surveying / project management services.

 

What do we do as Building Surveyors / Project Managers?


building-workWe provide professional advice on all aspects of property and construction. We work on site with new buildings and are concerned with the aftercare and performance of existing buildings. This is a very wide field and may include advising on various aspects of buildings at different stages, including:

  •     Design;
  •     Maintenance;
  •     Repair;
  •     Dilapidations;
  •     Refurbishment;
  •     Restoration;
  •     Sustainability.
  •     Acquisition

The nature of our work may range from the design of large, multimillion-pound structures to modest adaptations and repairs, and sometimes includes working with buildings of architectural or historic importance.
We may be called upon to give evidence in court in cases where building regulations have been breached and as expert witnesses on building defects and dilapidations.

We work in many areas of property and construction so the work is diverse and rarely routine. Tasks typically involve:

  •     ensuring projects are completed on budget and on time;
  •     advising clients on schemes and projects and determining requirements;
  •     preparing scheme designs with costings, programmes for completion of projects and specification of works;
  •     preparing documents for tender and advising on appointing contractors, designers and procurement routes;
  •     determining the condition of existing buildings, identifying and analysing defects, including proposals for repair;
  •     advising on management and supervision of maintenance of buildings;
  •     dealing with planning applications and advising on property legislation and building regulations;
  •     assessing and designing buildings to meet the needs of people with disabilities;
  •     advising on construction design and management regulations;
  •     negotiating dilapidations (when there is a legal liability for a property's state of disrepair);
  •      carrying out feasibility studies;
  •      advising on the health and safety aspects of buildings;
  •      advising on boundary and rights of light disputes and party wall procedures;
  •      preparing insurance assessments and claims.

For reconciliation purposes all our guidance are to be undertaken by Chartered Building Surveyors, who are also full members of Chartered Institute of Builders, Corporate Building Engineers and who also, hold professional accreditation in the areas of Party Wall Surveying. This proves the highest level of superiority and client service.
We believe ourselves to be effective leaders, leadership never goes out of fashion, and the reality of leadership cannot change. We believe the fate of our business is determined in large measure by the actions and inactions, for good or ill. We inspire our clients to realise their personal and collective potential, and are often the deciding factor between a company being good at what it does and achieving greatness.

Dilapidations

 

It can come as a horrible outrage towards the end of a lease when the landlord requires massive work from the tenant to remedy damage or disrepair or to put the premises back in their original state if the tenant has made internal alterations. If the tenant does not carry out this work, he or she may be required to pay the cost of having it done.

As a tenant you may be able to challenge the landlord's list of required repair work, referred to as a schedule of dilapidations. But to be in a strong position to mount a challenge you need to consider the dilapidations question right at the outset, with the help of your chartered surveyor, before you sign a lease.

The preparation of a Schedule or challenging a claim requires detailed knowledge of the law and practice of dilapidations, the civil procedure rules and correct interpretation of the lease covenants.

We can assist in:

Preparing Schedules of Dilapidations on behalf of Landlords Acting for tenants in defending dilapidation claims made by Landlords Preparing schedules on behalf of tenants where the Landlord has defaulted under his repairing covenants. For instance, on multi-let buildings, preparing Schedules of Condition before commencement of leases
Service charge disputes.


Dilapidations are a complex and contentious aspect of the landlord and tenant relationship. No two dilapidations claims can be identical because no two buildings are exactly the same, nor will the lease covenants or other circumstances necessarily be similar either. It therefore follows that a tenant is always prudent to seek the advice of a Chartered Surveyor before contracting a new lease, or when served with a schedule of dilapidations in respect of an existing or historic lease. The tenant should also check whether the surveyor or firm to be appointed has the expertise to advise on both the question of repair and the valuation of the claim for damages, if appropriate, under section 18(1) of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1927, to avoid the need to instruct two separate surveyors or two separate firms.
